Poor Richard III. After his war-torn bones were found earlier this year in a Leicester car park, the controversial king turned out not to have been quite the deformed viper, toad or hedgehog that Shakespeare called him.
His supporters want him remembered as the man who created special courts to hear complaints from the poor, who abolished onerous taxes and who banned curbs on printing. Still, it will never be known if the man who in 1483 made a risky gambit for the throne was licentious or not, a child-killer or not.
Lesson: Focus on leading. Leave your legacy to the historians.
